Derwent Lightfast pencils are formulated to be 100% lightfast, meaning that the core is resistant to colour change and will not change for up to 100 years under museum conditions. The revolutionary oil-based core creates a buttery, velvety texture, allowing the complete integration of colours.

Dark colours will sit will over lighter shades for effective outlining and defining negative spaces. Their opacity makes them ideal for use on coloured papers.

    It was a challenge to get used to them, because it requires more layering and less blending than most pencils. They do not behave like watercolour pencils. They behave more like oil paint. Once I figured out that a Copic colourless blender is perfect to use on them, they’ve quickly become my favourite pencil to use. You can get a crazy range of colours from the 36 pencil set. I just got a few extras, like a rich royal blue and a deeper bright red to help me along.
